This watch is a must-have for dog lovers. Chopard has launched an 88-piece limited series of the L. U. C XP Urushi – Year of the Dog to mark 2018.
The elegance and the technical nature of the ultra-thin L. U. C XP Urushi watch have made it an iconic model. Each year, Chopard draws inspiration from the repertoire of Chinese astrology to offer a fresh interpretation of its Urushi dial, made with an ancestral Japanese lacquer technique.
Dogs are loyal and faithful, and they are devoted to humans.
Chopard has decided to embody this canine through a representative of the extremely beautiful Asian “Akita” breed, depicted in a lush natural setting dotted with wild orchids and enhanced by the fluttering presence of a dragonfly, regarded as a lucky charm and a good omen.
At the heart of the ultra-thin case, measuring 39.5mm in diameter and 6.8mm thick, beats the mechanical self-winding L. U. C 96.17-L movement. Equipped with two barrels ensuring a 65-hour power reserve, this calibre fits inside such a slim case thanks to the off-centred 22ct gold micro-rotor.
